Orchids in Weddings

Orchids are among the most popular choices for weddings, given their rare beauty and elegance. Orchids in weddings are versatile and diverse, and regardless of color palette you can find the right orchid for your style.

Orchids make a sophisticated choice for the most discerning of brides. The phalaenopsis orchid, also known the “moth orchid”  because it’s petals look like wings, offers broad flowers in bright colors, perfect to be a focal point for your bridal bouquet, as well as to dress up a lapel.

Whether the centerpiece is made up entirely of orchids, or if the flowers simply add a dramatic and eye-catching element, orchids in weddings are always a wonderful choice.  In many circles, it is a popular tradition to have a small game or contest to give away the centerpiece at each table – and a gorgeous orchid floral arrangement is sure to be displayed proudly by the recipient at home!

When it is time to choose your wedding flowers, call Bloom Country Florist to make an appointment, speak with our wedding experts and floral designers to decide if orchids are the right flowers for your wedding bouquets and decor.

The birth flower of the month is the gladiolus. This striking plant presents multiple colorful blooms on a long, slender stalk. Also called the sword lily, the gladioli flower was given to the victorious gladiators of ancient Rome, which explains the origin of their name. They represent strength of character and loyalty, and so make a wonderful birthday choice for a best friend or family member. The gladiolus bloom comes in a variety of bright and festive colors – just call us and ask what is available!

July Birthday Bouquets are Sizzling!

SUMMER BIRTHDAY BANNER

When it comes to celebrating birthdays through flowers, there are so many ways to express ourselves.  In July, tradition gives us two distinct and very different ways to honor our loved ones through floral arrangements – one the official birth flower of the month, the other the birth stone. These two beautiful options span the spectrum of color – delphinium, the delicate blue or purple bloom that represents the month is cool and serene, while the representative ruby gemstone is known to bring the red hot fire. Whatever your July birthday bouquet represents, it will be beautifully created by the skilled design experts at Bloom Country.

Summer has officially arrived!

16 - SUMMER FEATURE TROPICAL

We enjoy the sunshine during long days, plan fun-filled barbecues and picnics with friends, and anticipating relaxing vacations. The flowers of summer that are representative of the summertime are colorful, vibrant and have the same cheerful vibe as we feel. Some of the more popular flowers of the summer season are those which flourish through the heat and whose colors don’t fade – the zinnia, the petunia, the gladiolus, the marigold, periwinkles, and petunias are all wonderful examples of summer blooms.

However, the sunflower may well be the best ambassador for summer, given its color and affinity for the sunshine. A bouquet of sunflowers will add joy to a room the instant it is placed on the table; and if you add the vivid yellow, blues and reds that nature offers this time of year, you’ll have an arrangement that is alive with summer ambiance.

Order your bright and bold bouquet to have a bit of summer in your life today!
